This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.

Hi All,

Someone from over the pond :)

Just lost Mum to Multiple cancers with only 4 weeks from diagnosis to Passing (buried March). Wow, bit of a shock to the system to say the least. My father also has Vascular dementia, so we suddenly had to sort out care and a home for him. Terrible guilt from that side of things too :(
There is a massive feeling of hopelessness, which I am sure others can relate to.
But the one thing that Shines through all of this is LOVE.

Have been working on any guilt, anger and regrets. Love is the only thing left from this and with that, there is no anger, guilt nor regret.
Its not easy, but its helping me 8-)

There are alternatives.   If you want to make it easier on him, please look up Danny Valdman on FaceBook. Yes, pregrieving is a normal part of the process with losing someone to the c.

this is the one and only place I feel I can speak what's in my heart and know people will understand. 

People are dying all over the place every day...why are we so bad at this?

Jo B - sorry people around you are not more supportive - but sometimes we have to remember that going through a loss personally isn't always easy for others who haven't experienced it to understand. My choice is to walk away from these people -I don't have to justify my feelings to anybody else. Take whatever time, actions you need to deal with the circumstances and losses in your life. God Bless

Kathleen -my heart goes out to you - I think a part of all of us starts grieving once a limit is put on one's life span. As Richard said - you are not alone here there are people who have gone through, or are going through, emotions similar to what you are feeling. Feel free to vent here anytime - it helps - doesn't change the circumstance other than you not having everything bottled up inside. I think it's healthy to vent . Here there is no judgement just empathy and understanding.
